Back to the Basics | Ears Study

I’m still working on continuing my anatomy study from my course with Aaron Blaise. The top portion of this image was all done through the course, while the bottom six ear paintings were all done as self assigned homework. I studied the bottom ears from images that I found on Google, and instead of doing them in color, I decided to just focus on a black and white study. The rendering isn’t that fantastic, simply because I’m not that great at shading ears just yet, due to the complex forms. I also didn’t focus a whole lot on rendering, because the main point I wanted to get out was the study of just figuring out how to draw ears.

So yeah, I hope that you guys like how these all turned out, and I look forward to starting the next course study on learning how to draw “Mouths”! 🙂

P.s. the head on the top right isn’t mine. I actually took a screen shot of it during the course to use for the study like Aaron Blaise was doing during the course. I wanted to be sure that I followed along each step of the way! ^^

Back to the Basics| Nose Studies

Today’s lesson was learning how to draw/paint “Noses” by Aaron Blaise. The course was about 30 minutes long, which you can see the progress I did during the course on the top of the image below. After the lesson, I gave myself some homework to continue the study by grabbing references from Google to try and reinforce everything that I had learned. The bottom six images were all made after the course, and took me a couple of hours to complete, probably 3+ hours in length.

I can already see a major improvement in my work, and I’m very excited to continue my studies and hone my skills as an artist.

I hope that you guys like how this course study of noses turned out, and thank you very much for checking out my work!! 🙂
